Located on the summit of the Santiam Pass on Highway 20, about 40 miles from Bend, Hoodoo truly is a hidden treasure. Hoodoo has serious expert runs that can be very challenging as well as a variety of trails for all skill levels making it good for the whole family. Hoodoo is also reasonably priced and because it is not yet as popular as some of the more developed ski area's, there are short or no lines. The staff at Hoodoo is extremly friendly and run a fantastic beginners program for children and adults alike. The Autobahn Tube Park is great fun and has up to 20 runs. Snowboarders are also well catered for at Hoodoo.
